How We Helped

Foundation for the Arts supported the release and music video for ‘La Di Da’ the focus track of ‘Slow Life’ album. The music video juxtaposed the seriousness of the song with comedic acting from both Dru Chen and Joel Tan.

He also joins the UTOPIA Reimagined Series, an annual music commissioning programme of award-winning local artists and bands, to reimagine the Singapore-inspired UTOPIA Symphony in their own styles.
